If you go when it is not crowded, food and service are much better than our last experience. Chicken and ribs were excellent. Veggies were good. Yams were superb. It is pricey though

This was not what we expected. Overpriced ( almost 50.00 for 2 at lunch, not including the tip), catfish was low quality/slimy; fried chicken was dry and not much flavor, collard greens were over seasoned, even for this Southern girl, banana pudding had zero flavor/ more like baby food, and we were there before the lunch rush. We will not be returning here or trying any of her other restaurants. There are many great locally owned eateries to try in this town, I would not recommend this place at all.

Food was excellent. Only think I would change was the mac and cheese it was my least favorite. Can't wait to visit again.

We absolutely adored this place and the food! The wait staff was spectacular and we're even scouting the place for our after wedding dinner!! Try the Mac and cheese and fried chicken! You won't regret it.

I have eaten at the Lady and Son's restaurant in Savannah so I was excited to try Paula Deen's family kitchen. It did not disappoint. Great food, wonderful atmosphere, wonderful service. The only problem I had was choosing between the dishes I'd like to try. If you are in Pigeon Forge, you must stop at the Paula Deen's Family Kitchen. It will NOT disappoint!
